Microvision Announces New Sales and Marketing Leadership

Experienced GE Manager, Ian D. Brown, Joins Microvision

BOTHELL, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 7, 2006--Microvision, Inc. (Nasdaq:MVIS - News), a leader in light scanning technologies, announced today that it has named Ian D. Brown, 43, as its Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Mr. Brown will lead the new Sales and Marketing organization and focus on developing and driving Microvision's growth strategy in the Americas and Europe.

Mr. Brown joins Microvision from GE Healthcare, a subsidiary of General Electric, most recently serving as the America's Sales and Marketing Manager for its $100M+ Nuclear Medicine unit. Over the past few years, Mr. Brown has been responsible for defining and executing the "go-to-market" and commercialization strategies for Nuclear Medicine products in the Americas. Mr. Brown has been instrumental in three major product launches of Nuclear medicine cameras, the most recent being a small footprint product for cardiac imaging.

A significant part of Mr. Brown's 16-year career at GE Healthcare was spent in Europe, helping to lead the European deployment of its "At the Customer for the Customer" projects, using Six Sigma methodology to proactively analyze and implement process gains in clinical environments for patient comfort and departmental efficiency. Mr. Brown held Six Sigma roles as a certified Blackbelt and Master Blackbelt.

"We are very pleased to add Ian's experience and proven leadership to our sales and marketing team," said Microvision President & CEO Alexander Tokman. "During his distinguished career at GE, Ian has consistently shown the ability to define, lead and work with numerous cross-functional business teams to drive execution and quality throughout the organization. His customer centric marketing, sales and Six Sigma skills and healthcare experience will allow him to drive synergies across our new combined sales and marketing organization, strengthen our customer focus and position us well for future growth into the new market segments."

"I have been privileged to work with many exceptional people at GE. Leaving a company that excels at technology and process structure was not an easy decision," stated Brown. "However, Microvision is poised to bring a variety of breakthrough product solutions to the industrial, consumer and military marketplace and I am thrilled to be part of that future."
